Edward “Ned” Puchner recently was named the new executive director of the the Greenville Museum of Art.

Puchner most recently served as curator of exhibitions at the McKissick Museum, which is part of the University of South Carolina. He officially starts on April 3.

“We are thrilled to announce Ned’s hiring,” GMA Board of Trustees President Brian Farkas said. “The museum needs an executive director who sees the same potential we all see and has the vision to drive the organization forward. In Ned Puchner, we’ve found our man. He’s a team-oriented, proactive, and tireless leader who will connect with our community and help make the Museum the Fine Arts hub of eastern North Carolina.”

In addition to his time at the McKissick Museum, Puchner has more than 15 years of experience working in the arts as curator, manager and administrator for galleries, nonprofits and museums. He earned a PhD in art history from Indiana University.

“I am honored to have this opportunity and appreciate the Board of Trustees' confidence in me," Puchner said. "With the board's support and the passion that our members bring to the museum, I look forward to leading a new era in the GMA's history.

“We have a great team in place, and I feel we are ready to build upon the museum's important role within the Greenville community to provide high-quality exhibitions and programming, expanded memberships benefits, and the long-term financial strength necessary to bring regional value to eastern North Carolina."

Founded in the early 1900s, the GMA’s mission is to provide and promote the visual arts through collections, exhibitions and education. The museum annually attracts more than 17,000 annual visitors as well as hosting numerous lectures, programs and tours.
